Ladies and gentlemen :oD Here's a first look at the TV show I've been working on all year, HITRECORD ON TV!
It's a half-hour variety show with short films, live performances, music, cartoons, and of course, MORE! Hundreds of thousands of artists from all over the world contribute to the collaborative projects we have going on our site -- hitRECord.org -- where I've been directing each piece and performing in a bunch of them too. Btw, we're still finishing the last few episodes, so come contribute something...
It's coming out January 18th, and it's gonna be on a new cable channel called Pivot. I think you guys are reeeally gonna like it <3
This is the key art we've created for marketing the show.
The full layered PSD zip file (very large) is resourced below.
I'd love to see animators and motion-graphics artist take this thing apart and bring it to life.
My first RECord made with Matt Moore, Emmanual Icaza and David Valdez.
RECorded to jeffpeff's beautiful rough cut track:
wellingtonB's Capture the Flag gameplay clock, animated to change scores and quarters at appropriate-ish times.
Is this what you meant Matt?
ANIMATORS: Download THIS REFERENCE CUT for the Cut Scene / Gameplay green screen footage & the Sound Effects of "Political Action 2," and animate Level 1-4 Cut Scene / Gameplay footage based on THIS SCRIPT. CONTRIBUTE HERE

I'm so proud and happy to say that I got my first hitRECord check today - just a few days after I (finally) received my copies of TBoTS3…
I wanted to celebrate it with you guys by making a 'lil photo highlighting them both, but Zoe found the book way too intriguing to let me take the photo… which instantly took me back to the photos I posted here after I got my copy of the previous volume a year ago. As mentioned on that RECord (resourced below), those photos were taken a week after she stood up (ish) for the first time and didn't feel confident enough to try and repeat it… until she saw me putting that book on the table after reading it. She was so intrigued by it that she dragged herself up like a true ninja, stood up properly for the first time, and started flipping the pages.
So now when I took this photo, it actually seemed even more appropriate than the one I originally planned to post... :)
But getting back to the main reason for this RECord… I just want to say thank you. I am so excited and feel so fortunate, and honored, and blessed to be a part of this community, and to be acknowledged - and now even paid (!) – simply for doing something that I love doing... it's just amazing. This site is amazing. And I am beyond happy that I found it just a wee bit over 2 years ago. It helped me grow as an artist (hell, it actually REMINDED ME that I AM an artist), it made me discover skills and capabilities I never knew were in me, and re-discover ones I thought were long gone... AND, of course, it gave me the chance to meet all you crazy-assed uber-talented super-freaks who inspire and amaze me on a daily basis, many of whom I'm now so proud to call my friends...
And now the book and the check... I mean... damn. Just... damn.
Thank you, hitRECord. Thank you, Joe. And thank you, friends - for making me feel a part of something so brilliantly beautiful.
Again, by heart.
Right, this is my first draft of the fight sequence. I'm putting this up now for feedback and advice. Is the pacing OK? Does it hang together? That sort of thing.
A few things that I know I need to tweak:
Joe's walk. Yeah he looks like he's dancing. I'll fix it.
The KO punch. Nees to be nearer the middle.
Once I've tied down the sequence here, I'll then add the FXs, sounds and Power Bar etc....
Let me know what y'all think!
Just the first draft of my take on it.
People in the 90s had no sense of astronomy.
Today I recieved my first payment for contributions to what we do here. It's surreal and amazing and I totally felt like I had to be one of those people that documents it. Even though I think I'm kind of a dork in the video.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm super-stoked to announce that the ad campaign we collaborated on with SONY for their RX100 II camera has officially launched!
Throughout the fall and early winter you will see a number of different variations of this ad online, in magazines, within SONY retail stores, and on outdoor signage like billboards and bus wraps all over the U.S. - so keep an eye out for them.
Earlier this year, Sony sent RX100 II cameras to fifty of some of the more prominent and established photographers on hitRECord for the purpose of shooting images for this ad campaign. And we’re proud that these photographers were chosen by members of our community, including Image Curators Marie Bee, IrmaVep, Metaphorest, and tori.
Some of the photos taken with these RX100 II cameras are used in the campaign, and I think it looks really awesome. Plus, it's great exposure for our company and our TV show.
I would like to say thank you to SONY for coming on board to support us again in 2013. And, as a result of this partnership, all of 2013's money-making productions - including the photographs featured in this ad campaign - will receive a portion of this sponsorship money.
Hope you all enjoy the campaign!
Thanks again <3
